the worst ever.
we where looking forward to a nice dinner, and by the look of it arturo's is a upscale place.
Nothing is further from the truth, the host gave us the feeling that we where an inconvienience but you think "maybe he is having a bad day"
The salad we got was blend and without fantasy, you get a better salad at McDonald.
The special of the day was lasagna and by de discription of the waiter is was the ultimate experience in italian cuisine. WRONG!!!!!!!!! It was probably warmed up from the day before, the edges where dryed out and it tasted like cheap supermarket lasagna so we eat only a few bites.
After mentioning our disappointment to the waiter we got the check, we got charged the full amount, $ 55 for a few bites of bad food was not what we had in mind for a nice saturdayevening dinner.
rude service, very expensive Exceptionally rude service". we were seated for more than 2 hours before our entered were served. While we were ordering, the waiter kept trying to hurry us up. When we told him we needed another minute he left us and didn't come back until my husband got up from the table and went to find him. When we asked our waiter when would we be served, he told us the restaurant had over 250 other meals to get put. We had to get up to refill our own water and had to ask multiple times to get refills on soda for the children in our party. After a very expensive meal that was definitely not worth it, my husband spoke to the manager. He shrugged his shoulders and said " sorry" and walked away. I can't remember the last time I received such poor service from any restaurant, never mind one with four diamonds! Exceptionally rude service. Overpriced. Unbelievable that it rates 4 diamonds. The staff and management did not care that we were waiting for over two hours to receive our meal. When we asked where our entered were, we received a very surly response. At the end ofvthe long meal, we said something tovehe manager who shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Steer clear of this place
Bad service, bad food. Rude, bad service, mediocre food
Mustard attack caesar salad. Nice staff to patron ratio, but subpar food. I've learned to expect uninspired food in Boca, but there's no excuse for such poor plating and blandness. The salad was an unedible pastiche of mustard and stale croutons
Best Italian in the city. This hidden gem is a dazzling display of ambieance and preparation.Dont believe these bad reviewers who give this place a 1 star. These types of jerks are what run wonderful restaraunts out of business. As you enter into your dining room you can visually see where the pasta is homemade every day by a wonderful chef who has been in the kitchen for a long time and knows what hes doing. The service is attentive and is at your hand every step of the meal. First the antipasto cart a delicous display of fine Italian specaelties. Then to the ceasar salad tableside. How many places in Boca have such that. For dinner the veals are all good and the fish is fresh also this is somewhat kid friendly and this restarunt is great for special occasions. For desert you can choose from one of the best Italian desserts you'll ever have. Their pastry chef Elisa Gismondi was awarded the dessert diva award in the best of boca November Issue. Or you can go simply with bananas foster tableside. Always a great treat. This is truly the one of the best old school Italian restarunts around.
AWESOME RESTAURANT. They treated us like royalty; they gave us a private room, and there were literally 1-3 waiters in the room 100% of the time catering to our every whim. The table was set perfectly for the # of people, and it was really fantastic. The private room was awesome and perfect for a business dinner.
Unbelievably rude. We went to Arturo's for our anniversary with our family and were very disappointed. My in-laws used to go here all the time for their anniversary years ago - so we were excited - however, after we got our food - we were extremely disappointed. My mother-in-law ordered a filet and it was soooooo incredibly tough - it was hard to cut through - and didn't taste that good. We let the server know and he never apologized, never asked if she wanted anything else, etc. The server then got very rude with my father-in-law and argued with him. When the bill came, we stated that we didn't think we should pay for the steak - but - were told that it was 'up to the owner' - and the owner didn't take it off the bill. So needless to say - we will never go back here again and will make sure anyone we talk to does not go either. P.S. My husband will eat anything and everything and he even stated that the steak was disgusting :(
A dining experience.
With large portions of hearty Italian fare, served in a romantic "grown-up" atmosphere, Arturo's is a great place for family celebrations.
You can even "people watch" as the South Florida parade of plastic surgery unfolds.
Bring your Gucci watch and lots of cash and relax and enjoy. (Try the veal dishes. They are excellent!)
It's like Brooklyn relocated... to South Florida.
Maaarvelous!!!. The food, the ambiance, the service...all were impeccable. My husband and I were there for our first anniversary. The assorted vegetables from the appetizer cart were a delight! We both had ravoili stuffed with mushrooms as a second appetizer. For dinner, my husband had veal shank over angel hair pasta and I had lamb chops sauteed in a white wine butter sauce. We both were speechless as we devoured every morsal. We ended our meal with ricotta cheesecake and tiramisu. To our surprise, our bill was only $104 (no drinks, without tip). We were serenaded by the pianist. Absolute romance was the order of the evening. We will return!!
